The BCM Special Virtual Council adopted the draft IDP and Budget, paving the way for the document to be published publicly in order to get public inputs.
The City is therefore calling on people to fully participate on the roadshows as they assist the Metro in planning for its upcoming financial year. During the IDP meetings community members are afforded an opportunity to raise key issues on service delivery matters that affect them as well as priority issues in their communities. The City will also hold webinars for key stakeholders to discus the document.
Contained in the IDP & Budget document is Tariffs, Subsidies and issues that affect the BCM residents directly.
In previous years, Metro residents gathered in community halls and stadiums to indicate to the City leadership what they wanted to see happening in their wards, and what they want included in the IDP.
With fears of a third wave and a ban on massive gatherings, communities are being asked to make their submissions through community radio stations and online platforms.
The community radio stations to be utilized are Keith Ngesi Online Radio, Mdantsane FM, Wildcoast FM, Kumkani FM, Izwi Lethemba FM and Link FM.
Social media platforms to be used are the BCM Facebook page, Dispatch LIVE, Keith Ngesi Radio and the BCM Twitter page.
The WhatsApp line to be used is 076 014 7911.
The email address to be used is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IDP & Budget Speech will also be made available on the Municipal Website at www.buffalocity.gov.za .
